“Our desire to play is innate and as vital to human health as sleeping and eating.” - Kathy Hirsh-Pasek, professor of psychology at Temple University, Philadelphia.
It all started when…
I discovered the thrill of creating beauty using the humble pencil as a child. I have studied and created art all my life, exhibiting in Sydney, California and London. I now love to use the skills I have learnt over the years to create original art experiences for my students which provide them a space to discover their own unique voice and style, in whatever medium they are drawn to.
My interest increasingly lies in the joy of the process rather than the finished piece, but more often than not if the former is there, and a state of flow is entered, the finished piece will unfold. I bring to my sessions years of knowledge on technique and materials, a big heart and a desire to see in my students both enjoyment and a state of peace in the moments when they are creating. Art is more than the images we can create. It is also the energy, the truths, the thoughts and imagination that become freed. Art can make us feel more joy, more confident, more centred and at ease.
In my classes you can expect some yoga to unlock your creativity, music, nature, dancing, lots of laughing and without question much paint on your hands!
I run group classes, monthly art therapy style sessions, one to one tuition and art parties. If any of this sounds good to you, please get in touch! I would love to hear from you.
